## FAQs on Percent-off

### What's 5 percent-off £100?

Replacing the given values in formula (a) we have:

Amount Saved = Original Price x Discount in Percent / 100. So,

Amount Saved = 100 x 5 / 100

Amount Saved = 500 / 100

In other words, a 5% discount for an item with an original price of £100 is equal to £5 (Amount Saved).

Note that to find the amount saved, just multiply it by the percentage and divide by 100.

### What's the final price of an item of £100 when discounted £5?

Using the formula (b) and replacing the given values:

Sale Price = Original Price - Amount Saved. So,

Sale Price = 100 - 5

This means the cost of the item to you is £95.

You will pay £95 for an item with an original price of £100 when discounted 5%.

In this example, if you buy an item at £100 with 5% discount, you will pay 100 - 5 = 95 pounds.

### 5 is what percent off 100 pounds?

Using the formula (b) and replacing given values:

Amount Saved = Original Price x Discount in Percent /100. So,

5 = 100 x Discount in Percent / 100

5 / 100 = Discount in Percent /100

100 x 5 / 100 = Discount in Percent

500 / 100 = Discount in Percent, or

Discount in Percent = 5 (answer).
